    Another rotor choice

    Many members have asked about another 2 piece rotor choice given the Evosport situation. I just ordered a set of 2 piece front rotors (open slotted) from racingbrake.com They do not carry cross drilled (terrible choice for the track anyway) or rears yet. They are about 12 pounds lighter than stock and the company is very interested in providing more for the MB community. They honestly did not think that there were many performance enthusiasts under this marque. They may well become sponsors if they get some inquiries.

    Best of all they offer same day shipping not same year.

    Are these available for all Benz models?

    Excellent alternative suggestion. Seems a lot of people thought going through Evosport was the only option.

    Nice find. I hope they work out for you and everyone else looking for a solid option. Racing Brake has a great reputation as well. Here's some more info I found when I was looking into them for my car.

    Rotor Material: Racing Formula Alloyed Gray Iron & Heat treated
    Machining: Open Slot
    Surface: EDP Coating w/cross cut grinding on friction surface

    Alloyed iron formula adds strength and heat resistance. Heat treating further improves rotor performance for a more uniform and stabilized microstructure.
    Design:
    The cooling vanes are of a convergent nozzle design, which increases airflow and turbulence and makes discs cooler. (Illustration #1)

    The center-mount flanges for hat mounting to the rotor ring have several benefits. (Illustration #2)

    Click here to enlarge

    -It allows the ring to be used on either side of the vehicle simply by mounting the hat on either side of the ring (unidirectional).
    -The stress load transferred from the ring to the hat is balanced.
    -Air inlets are widely open to both inboard and outboard sides of the rotor. More air suctions and even temperature on both sides of the disc surface.
    -Heat transfer from the disc surfaces to the hat is even and minimized by increasing the flange length and the airflow around the flanges.
    -Mounting flanges are on both friction surfaces ultimately provides excellent heat balance.

    Exclusive full floating design with 10.9 grade alloyed hardware. Hardware is DACRO coated and crimp locking. DACRO is highly corrosion resistant and provides a film for easier movement between the hat and rotor ring as disc expands and contracts and the crimp design provides positive engagement without rattling or torque loss at temperature.

    Fasteners:
    Self Locking - 2 Pieces
    No springs, No glue, No clips!

    They seem to have applications for C32, C63 AMG, CLK55 AMG, E63 AMG, C55, CLK 500 and CLK550.

    12 lbs. lighter than stock each? That's pretty good. That makes me want to see if they're offered for the 325...

    The rotors pictured by hhughes above are their "open slot" variant. The slots are cross-drilled and curved. I remember when they first released their C32 products... allegedly a high-quality 2-piece rotor offering. Glad to hear they're still around, making rotors for AMGs.

    I am looking at the racing brake site and it seems they do have Front & Rear fitment for the C63. I apologize if I was mistaken earlier and mislead anyone about this application.

    They do not seem to have any options for a 135i...
